The fine folks of Alpha Epsilon Pi put on their production of “Batman: Turn Off the Dark Knight.” It doesn’t include any actors falling to their deaths, but neither does it include a gratuitous spider-goddess singing about shoe-shopping, so that;s not bad. Besides, it’s only five minutes, so give it a shot. And for the record, my dislikes include videogame companies who don’t care about games, Final Fantasy XIII, and Michael Bay movies. Likes: booze and comic book characters singing Lady Gaga songs. And now you know. Thanks to Tyler S. for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
